Props to Timothy Mannion for a story well crafted that I never would have expected!

Props to director Gabe Torres as it had to be rather difficult to direct a guy in a car trunk and he did a great job!

Props to the performance that Stephen Dorff did in this movie! He had such little room to work but pulled off a truly good performance! I believe Stephen Dorff was an executive producer for this film as well.

Stephen Dorff is stuck inside the trunk of a car. He is a Secret Service agent with information about where the President goes in case of an emergency. After guarding this information throughout the entire film (under some very difficult circumstances), something unbelievable happens and ruins the movie. For a much better film about a person stuck in a box/confined space, recommend checking out Buried with Ryan Reynolds.

A truly exciting thriller! And ORIGINAL! So tired of seeing the same thriller plot over and over. Unique concept with great performances, direction, and editing. Will see again and buy when the DVD is avilable. Five stars, 'both thumbs up! WAY UP'

Jeremy Reins (Stephen Dorff) wakes up in the trunk of car. He doesn't know who put him there but he guesses it has something to do with his job. He's a secret service agent.
He's actually in a plastic box within a trunk. There is a red digital clock at one end counting down. He has a two-way radio and finds he can communicate with another prisoner, that's trapped in another trunk. There's a tube from the front of the cab, through which things can be dropped into his box. A card is his first clue. On one side is a picture of the White House, on the other the words, "Give us the location of roulette."
"Brake's a unique one," Stephen said. "It's almost like an experimental movie. We made it in 10 days, and this 19-20-year-old kid (Timothy Mannion) wrote the script. I thought it was a clever concept in a time when Hollywood's frankly not being that clever lately."
Make no doubt about it Stephen's acting, the idea and the director, Gabe Torres, make Brake work.
The movie was dedicated to Stephen's mom, who he lost a few years back to cancer. This is a great little thriller film you'll miss if you don't seek it out soon.
"We pretty much stay in this confined, claustrophobic space for, I think, 67 minutes," Stephen said. "For me, it's manipulation. It's a game, this film. Ultimately, there are a couple twists once I get out of the truck, which I really can't go into because I would probably ruin the movie for you."

O.K.--This has the feel of a low budget direct-to-dvd flick. But surprise! It's a helluva ride (pun intended) with an ending that caught me off balance. You could do much worse. Dorff holds the screen.

I caught this movie on one of the pay channels one early Sunday morning. Started watching (lucky for me it had just started) and immediately became enthralled. I know it's kind of a formula movie, but for those of us who either use TV and movies for entertainment and/or stress relief or stare straight through the TV while you think of a thousand other things you should be doing, this movie was great. On that Sunday, I was the former. My 18 yr old son NEVER watches TV and only occasionally goes to see a movie. He is a computer modeler and picks apart every scene of a movie, so I usually don't ask him to watch movies with my because he's such a Debbie Downer.

However, I knew 20 minutes in that he would love Brake. I Tivo'd the next time it came on and we watched together. He loved it. I purchased a new blu-ray player for his computer for Christmas and bought the Brake blu-ray to go along with it. He's watched it a couple of times. It's a good movie--check it out.

I was unwillingly thrown inside the car along with the main character in this film throughout the ride, and felt every bump and the grinding of the motors. The suspense level was intense, and its eventual unraveling begat more unease, even if the plot was resolved by the end of the film.

In this mildly entertaining thriller Stephen Dorff plays a man trapped inside a plastic case. To reveal his occupation may spoil the film's plot, so let me call him just a man. His name is Jeremy Reins, and as the film starts, he wakes up in the dark, confused and disoriented, to find there is something like a digital clock before him. The countdown is going on and it seems there is more than one person who is trapped like him. What is going on?

Comparison is inevitable. The opening of "Brake" strongly reminds of "Buried," in which Ryan Reynolds' character finds himself buried alive inside a coffin. Now let me quickly add that Gabe Torres' "Brake" differs from "Buried" at several major points. Without revealing too much, I can say that similarity ends pretty early on in the story, where we know why Jeremy is held captive.

So far, the film is good. In spite of Stephen Dorff's solid performance, however, "Brake" is not as thrilling as it should be. The plot development is slow and contrived. The film cannot maintain the claustrophobic atmosphere that grabs our attention at its beginning, showing its hand too early in its attempt to keep us interested. The film's mid-section feels drawn-out, with gimmicks (like the "countdown" and the attacking bees) that are random and pointless. It borrows ideas from other thrillers and never develops them.

Several reviewers have criticized the film's ending. While I agree with them, I also think the weak script is to be blamed for the ineffective development of the story. In short, we don't know what the trapped man wants (or needs) to do. His own survival or something else? The story goes around and around, not knowing where it wants us to take. "Brake" has a nice idea, which is ultimately half-baked.
